Renewable Heat Incentive - Home Energy Government Grants "/>

Renewable Heat Incentive

The domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government-backed scheme to encourage the adoption of renewable energy technologies among homeowners. The UK government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating to be generated by renewable sources. Successful applicants will receive RHI payments on a quarterly basis over 7 years.

The RHI scheme allows eligible UK households to earn up to £3,690 per year for heating their home using renewable technologies.

The technologies involved in the RHI are:

  • Biomass boilers and biomass stoves (6.88p/kWh)
  • Air source heat pumps (10.71p/kWh)
  • Ground source heat pumps (20.89p/kWh)
  • Solar thermal (21.09p/kWh)
